Experiencing heart problems often changes a patient's perspective. Some people report new feelings of uncertainty, fears, and sadness.
Banner Good Samaritan Cavanagh Heart Clinic is hosting a special lecture featuring Samuel F. Sears Jr., PhD., a professor at East Carolina University's Brody School of Medicine.
Successful living with Implantable Cardioverter Defribillator (ICD) involves activating personal and family resources in new ways. The patient’s outlook on life and how they view their ICD will affect how they adjust to life after the ICD. These are feelings that are common in victims of traumatic events that prompt big changes. Research has shown that positive adjustment to heart disease is possible, particularly if they use specific strategies to achieve their own brand of quality of life. This research- based talk will explore the strategies of: survivorship, building social support, action planning, stress management, and shock management.
When: 6 to 8:30 p.m., July 23, 2014
Where: Sandstone North and South Conference Room, Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center, 1111 E. McDowell Road, Phoenix
